James selected on high performance panel

Mallow golfer James Sugrue has been selected on the Men’s High Performance Development Panel for 2020/2021, and joins a select group of golfers who have been earmarked for future success. It’s a busy time for James, who produced some great golf recently at the Dubai Irish Open, and earlier travelled to New York to compete in the US Open at Winged Foot. In coming days, the amiable Mallow man will be on the plane to the United States again, as he gears up for the experience of a lifetime, taking part in the US Masters in Augusta. He will be guided in the competition by his friend and caddie Conor Dowling, and James’s family and fellow members from Mallow Golf Club will be glued to their television screens on November 12th-15th. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, his family and supporters won’t be able to make the trip to the United States to cheer him on. James is expected to turn professional in the new year, and the experience of Augusta and other top courses will have him well prepared for the step-up to the pro ranks.
